How to Fit New Ceiling Lights : Are you a DIY Guru or a bit of a beginner? Want to know more about installing lights? If youre looking to improve the look of a room then installing new ceiling lights is one of the fastest and easiest ways of doing so. Although there is a huge range of sizes, shapes and styles for ceiling lights, installing them always follows the same process: Safety first Before you can put in your shiny new ceiling lights you first need to remove your old fixtures. If you want to install a light where there wasnt one before you should have an electrician install a circuit and electrical box so you have a power supply! Before you even think about removing the light you need to do is turn off the electricity at the mains to protect yourself from electrocution. Remove previous fixture The first step in removing the fixture is to undo the screws (or bolts) that hold the light to the ceiling and pull it down carefully. Once the light is loose you will be able to access the electrical wires, which you disconnect by unscrewing the wire caps that hold them together. You will also need to unscrew and remove the mounting bracket that is attached to the electrical box as this may not be the correct fitting for your new light.
Ceiling Lights : To make the right choice, you must be well acquainted with the different types of ceiling lights: - Decorative Ceiling Lights: These are the lights, which add style quotient to the room, where they get installed. Available widely in varied shapes and sizes, these can be used for accessorizing your rooms. - Single Glass Pendant Lights: These ceiling can be aptly used for dining rooms as they can be hung at low heights, which embellish the décor of your dining room greatly. More so, the look is fabulous and this soft lighting makes the ambience of the dining room appropriately soothing for taking meals. The single glass pendant lights are available in different styles & sizes, you can choose from flat, sleek or round lights. - Flush Lights: Mostly available in round shapes, the lights are fitted inside the rim, which can be of silver or gold or any other color. These lights can be conveniently used in kitchens as the area gets brightly lit up by these lights. Also available in square forms, these can be used in bedrooms as well.
Choosing the Right Bathroom Ceiling Lights : Fancy a new bathroom but cant stretch to a new bathroom suite - just change the light fittings! Its astounding how much difference something as simple as a new ceiling light can make. And theres such a variety of bathroom ceiling lights on offer that youre bound to find one to fall in love with. The thing to remember about bathroom decor is that functionality is key, and its your choice of lighting that will dictate the practicality of your bathroom -or otherwise. The good thing is that the current crop of lighting designers seems to have cottoned on to this and have managed to combine supreme functionality with stunning good looks. One way to combine functionality with good looks is by choosing a fitting that is adjustable, both in terms of light levels and light direction. You could, of course, also achieve the same result by a clever combination of ceiling lights and wall lights. Light levels are easily managed by the use of dimmer switches. Bear in mind though that all switching will need to be outside of the bathroom in order to conform to European Bathroom Lighting Regulations. Whilst putting in that dimmer switch, it also makes sense to switch your bathroom lighting separately, which will give you greater flexibility in terms of mood setting - something that is now viewed as essential when it comes to illuminating the smallest room. Variable direction of light isnt difficult to achieve either, with many halogen and LED fittings coming on some variation of moveable support. LED light, in particular, is wonderfully directable, which makes it ideal as task lighting. LED ceiling lights installed strategically can be directed at mirrors and other areas, such as vanity units, thus eliminating shadows and providing the perfect illumination for shaving and making up. Style-wise theres an enormous range of ceiling lights designed specifically for bathrooms on the market: from neatly recessed through flush fitting - all the way to chandeliers! Probably the best advice here is to go for one style and stick to it throughout the room. Having said that, a dressy pendant ceiling light in an otherwise minimalist bathroom would certainly give you the wow factor! Dont make the mistake of thinking that ceiling light fittings are old hat. Combine bathroom ceiling lights with wall lights, shower lights and plinth lights and youll find that they will become the lynch-pin of your bathroom lighting scheme. One final word of wisdom: dont scrimp on your home lighting, whether bathroom or other room. Good quality, well installed lighting is actually an investment - and a good looking one at that.
Make Your Outdoors Look Brilliant With Outdoor Ceiling Lights : You can use the modern fluorescent lamps in these fixtures or the normal incandescent lamps available at most lighting stores. Some people prefer the yellow light that the normal bulbs give out, as these lamps make them feel nostalgic and romantic. However, the wattage these lamps consume can be as high as 100 watts or 150 watts, so they can consume high levels of energy. So, many people now prefer the fluorescent lamp that consumes less electricity. However, you may still go in for the lights with a yellow tinge for their overall appeal. You can easily find the outdoor ceiling lights at your favorite lighting store, or you can easily purchase these online. However, before you make a final decision regarding a purchase, be sure that you are buying the right product and it goes with the general décor and ambience of your house. With the right type of fixtures, you will be able to transform your home into a warm and welcoming abode.
